The Honduras earthquake today is being called the Roatan Earthquake.

The island city of Roatan is depicted in the above map just in to LALATE, marked south of quake's epicenter.Onshore, Belize is comparable distance from the epicenter, to the west, as Honduras is to the south, causing many to give the earthquake a selection of different names including the Belize quake, the Honduras quake, or the Roatan Earthquake.As broke moments ago on LALATE, the magnitude 7.1 today May 28 2009 hit at a mere 6.2 miles below the earth's surface, causing it to be felt for miles at 3:24 am local time.

The narrow depth of any quake increases the distance by which neighboring regions like Belize can feel it.Breaking details in from the USGS are the following:7.1 * Thursday, May 28, 2009 at 08:24:45 UTC * Thursday, May 28, 2009 at 03:24:45 AM at epicenter * Time of Earthquake in other Time ZonesLocation 16.783°N, 86.166°W Depth 10 km (6.2 miles) set by location program Region OFFSHORE HONDURAS Distances 130 km (80 miles) NNE of La Ceiba, Honduras 225 km (140 miles) N of Juticalpa, Honduras 320 km (200 miles) NNE of TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras 1170 km (730 miles) SSW of Miami, Florida Location Uncertainty horizontal +/- 6.3 km (3.9 miles); depth fixed by location program Parameters NST=119, Nph=119, Dmin=323.9 km, Rmss=0.88 sec, Gp=104°,One person is dead, and many injured.
